Johnny Vegas sparked a security scare at the Paralympic by leaving a bag unattended in the athletics stadium.
The St Helens funnyman says he returned after realising his error and found it surrounded by bomb disposal experts.
Vegas, 46, who is guest-hosting Channel 4’s The Last Leg, said: “It was nearly a major international incident.
“They were going to shut down a section of the stadium and evacuate it. I came back just in time.”
